how to get into Berghain

Berghain is the timeless mystery of nightlife culture. Its notoriously selective bouncer Sven Marquardt has become a legend of sorts.

Illustrator Sophie Halamoda has zeroed in on this Berghain obsession and created a cheeky guide on how to get past the bouncers of the club. Her 28-step story covers all the bases: from clearing out your schedule in advance and picking out what (and what not) to wear to ensuring friendships aren’t ruined over granted access, and includes instructions both for those lucky enough to get the pass and advice for those sent home instead.
